It was no Life of Riley for this Riley at the shelter. In fact, his life was on the line. About three years old, this Hound mix arrived on March 1st as a stray at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. As just another hound dog in a crowded, high-kill shelter, Riley's prospects of getting out of the shelter alive were fairly grim. Due to a lack of space at the shelter, up to eight dogs were to be euthanized on March 4th.
